Waitress Nicole Ferris arrives home to find her cabin in chaos. At first fearful that her abusive ex might be after her, she quickly discovers her roommate is missing. Colorado sheriff Mace Sheridan suspects her strange artist friend staged his own disappearance to gain his withheld inheritance. Intent on keeping Nicole safe as the kidnappers demand she drop off the ransom, Mace realizes his earlier suspicions were wrong, and events soon take a dangerous turn. RESTLESS SPIRIT (3) by Cassie Miles is enjoyable, although predictable, despite its red herrings. The characters are interesting, however, and share some electric moments.
